Megasorber P is a sound absorption material consisting of a patented acoustically tuned fireproof sound absorbing facing (Megasorber Soundmesh® G8) (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Australia Patent No. 2009206197) and environmentally friendly acoustic polyester-wool.
Megasorber P has BCA (Building Code of Australia) Group 2 Classification with Average Specific Extinction Area less than 250 m2/kg. It complies with IMO Resolution A653(16) requirements.
The unique facing material Soundmesh® G8 has high temperature resistance up to 550°C and Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 1 Fire Classification. It complies with IMO Resolution A653(16) requirements.
Traditional fireproof faced materials and sound reflecting film facings (such as aluminium foil, mylar film and polyurethane film) have little or zero acoustic properties and block noise from being absorbed by the underlying polyester. In contrast, Soundmesh® G8 has been engineered and tuned to maximise the sound absorption. As a result, Megasorber P provides exceptional high sound absorption at low to mid frequencies.
Megasorber P has high durability in hot and humid conditions (long service life) over conventional glassfibre-based and non-hydrolysis-resistant foam materials. It provides excellent thermal insulation. It also has a protective, tough, durable and easy to clean surface. A special water/fluid-repellent G8 facing option is also available.
Standard facing colours: white (WH), black (BK), grey (GR) and sandstone (SS).

Specifications are subject to change without notice. Please contact us for the latest version. "Fireproof", "Non-flammable", "Non-combustible" means the product has successfully passed AS/NZS 3837, IS0 5660-1, ASTM E1354 Group 1 fire rating (AWTA test report No. 7-566397-CV). Patent applied for Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085; Australia Patent No. 2009206197). The data listed in this data sheet are typical or average values based on tests conducted by independent laboratories or by the manufacturer. They are indicative only of the results obtained in such tests and should not be considered as guaranteed maximums or minimums. Materials and installation methods must be tested under actual service to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
Important Notice and Disclaimer: These recommendations are for general guidance only. Materials and installation methods must be tested under actual service conditions to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
Sheets must be kept flat during the handling and installation process. Bending or folding sheets will create creases on the Soundmesh G8 facing. Once formed, these creases are difficult to remove.
The product can be hand-cut by a knife or machine-cut by a bench saw or rotating blade cutter with a fine tooth blade. If cutting by hand, we recommend using a sharp Stanley and/or serrated knife.
We recommend wearing gloves during cutting. The Soundmesh G8 facing edges may cut or irritate the skin.
Use a saw hole cutter or a hole puncher as the drill bit to cut holes through the product.
A typical mechanical fastening system is shown as follows:
Construction contact adhesive such as 'liquid nail' is recommended to adhere the product onto the substrate. We recommend an extra mechanical fixing in addition to the glue or self-adhesive backing. Photos below show the installation process.
CAUTION: for ceiling or overhead applications, a mechanical fastening system is strongly recommended to provide extra support. The photos below show the combination of a construction adhesive and small screws.
Plastic, steel or aluminium U channels can be used to cover the edges. The photos below show examples of different finishes.
